Famous quotes containing the word appearance:

    February is a suitable month for dying. Everything around is dead, the trees black and frozen so that the appearance of green shoots two months hence seems preposterous, the ground hard and cold, the snow dirty, the winter hateful, hanging on too long.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    Now the appearance of the glory of the LORD was like a devouring fire on the top of the mountain in the sight of the people of Israel.
    Bible: Hebrew, Exodus 24:17.

    Our new Constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.
    Benjamin Franklin (1706–1790)
